    You can try VCL (http://www.mosix.org/txt_vcl.html) but that is specific to the Mosix Linux distribution.

    Alternatively, you can try using MPI to write distributed apps that run over multiple PCs and each of those apps will then use OpenCL.

    Re: OPENCL distributed computing.

    Hi All,

    If i use MPI to write distributed apps,do i have to go and copy the apps to the PCs on which i want run them.

    For example if i have 5 Pcs connected in a network to my PC.If the exe is Hello.exe which is a OPENCL exe.Do i have to go and place Hello.exe to all the 5 PCs.

    And then use the MPI to run Hello.exe on my PC and all 5 connected PCs at the same time.

    Please clarify my question.

    Thanking in advance,

    Regards,
    Ashwath

    I think it would be much easier to ask in a MPI forum for that.

    But if i remember correctly from my studies, mpi does the distribution for you. You only have to give the mpi framework a textfile with the ip's of your hosts and it will distribute and execute your tasks. But this has been 5 years now.
